Why These are Harry’s Best In-Game Super Bowl Prop Bets
While most people will be discussing such essential things like how the Kansas City Chiefs run defense will stack up against the devilish San Francisco 49ers running attack, I tend to look at the Super Bowl with an eye towards my favorite bets, prop bets. With Super Bowl LIV on the horizon, we can take a look at some of my best In-Game Super Bowl Prop bets. Our goal here is to have fun with the prop bets while also putting some extra cash in your pocket.

Best In-Game Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 1: Number of Players to Attempt a Pass: 2.5
This is one that I like to play because of two reasons: The first reason is because you are always alive in this bet until literally the last play of the game. The second reason is that you can only win during the game and you can’t lose it until the end of the game. This prop has gone over in three of the last four years and four of the last six. In the Eagles/Patriots game two years ago, Philadelphia tight end Trey Burton and Patriots wide receiver Danny Amendola both attempted a pass in the wild Eagles victory. The season before that, wide receiver Julian Edelman—who was a quarterback in college at Kent State—threw a pass against the Falcons. And finally, wide receiver Tedd Ginn Jr attempted a pass for the Panthers in their loss to the Broncos in 2016.
Harry’s Pick – Over (Why Not)
Best In-Game Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 2: Will Either Team Score in the First 7.5 Minutes of the Game?
The “Yes” (over) has hit in seven of the 10 playoff games this season. In all the Chiefs playoff games it has hit because of the opposing teams and for the 49ers, it hit thanks to the Vikings. However, when the 49ers and Packers played in the NFC Championship Game, it did not hit thanks the 49ers going three-and-out and Aaron Rodgers playing the way Aaron Rodgers plays in the NFC Championship.
Harry’s Pick – Yes… Anything can happen, but even more can happen when Patrick Mahomes is in the game.

Best In-Game Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 3: Will Either Team Score in the Last 2 Minutes of the First Half?
In both of San Francisco’s playoff games, this season the “yes” has been the winner. Not only has this bet won in the two Chiefs playoff games, but the yes has hit in their last seven playoff games combined.
Harry’s Pick – Yes… Mahomes was flawless in the drive right before half that gave the Chiefs a 21-17 lead with 11 seconds left. However, you have to make sure you are ok having to lay the big -350 juice.
Best In-Game Super Bowl Prop Bet No. 1: Shortest Touchdown of the Game?
Over/Under 1.5 Yards
This is a wild prop that has gone under a crazy amount of the time in playoff games since 2013. The under has hit in 62 of the last 87 playoff games. Yes. You read that correctly; in 67 of the last 82 playoff games, there has been a touchdown of just one yard. However, there is even more to this in-game prop bet than what meets the eye: the under is 17-15 over that stretch in wildcard games, but then it heats up in the divisional round where it is 25-7 before going off the rails in the conference championship where it is an astonishing 15-1. But this is the Super Bowl, so how is it in the Big Game? Well, the under is a solid 5-2 in the Super Bowl for a combined record of 62-25. Simply amazing.
Harry’s Pick—Under… All you need to know is this: Numbers don’t lie.
